The Art of Organisational Problem Solving
How to Think About What We are Doing in Management
This book explores the relationship between theory and practice in management. It enters into the debate over whether management should be taught as a set of theories to be learned ('management theory') or whether it is learned in a hands-on manner when a person is placed in a position to practice the skills of management ('management practice'). The author contends that it needs both theory and practice, and this book provides a methodological discourse about certain principles of 'organisational problem-solving.'

What Reviewers Are Saying
"... this is a book about use of method, and not a book of methods; the author leads readers through a series of 'typical' stages in method usage, encouraging the reader to reflect upon both the what and why of their own practice. It is in this area that the book may add the most value..." - Dr. Keith Horton, Napier University"
